Founded in October of 2010, No 2nd Takes Productions LLC. is a digital cinema production house which services the Miami, Florida and Chicago, Illinois markets.
We're on a never ending quest to find, create, design & produce extraordinary images for the web, television and social media platforms.
We specialize in livestream video productions as well as creative marketing and promotional videos for small/medium-sized companies;
Our team happily accepts new clients & projects based on scope of work and schedule availability.
We are blessed to have an amazing group of talented individual whom we call our family.
Here's some of our leads, who will help bring your vision to life.
Brandon is one of our editors and camera techs.
A graduate of Film and Television from Full Sail University, we couldn't be more excited to give him a playground to unleash his arsenal of creativity.
Brandon's attention to detail is rare and he is able to work across multiple non-linear editors to create some of our spectacular visuals.
He lives in Pembroke Pines with his wife and 2 dogs.
Robyn is our financial guru.
It is said that she balances her books in her spare time and during lunch she eats over Excel tables.
Ok, that was bad, but really. She's amazing.
After receiving her MBA from Northwestern University (Kellogg School of Business), Robyn helps keep our finances in order and works with our producer to make sure all client projects are on budget as well as on time.
If Robyn calls, we know she's asking for receipts or the occasional advanced screening for a Blockbuster film.
Both of which we are happily to oblige.
Rodney is one of the latest to join the family. As a film school graduate of Towson University, Rodney has worked as a show-runner and producer for the largest game shows in Kenya.
After relocating to the States, in 2002, his work has taken him across the country to Toronto, North Carolina, California, Arizona and Cleveland.
Lucky for us, travel and work are two of his favorite things to do. His ability to edit, produce and troubleshoot has proven invaluable to our team. As a newly expecting father, this year is definitely one of his breakout years.
Denise is one of our story producers and editors.
Denise obtained her degree in Television Production from Florida International University, one of the largest schools in the United States.
Her ability to see things not as they are, but what they could be, is one her greatest strengths.
She has created and developed stories as well as line produced for the likes of America’s Next Top Model (5 seasons), VICE Media, E!, as well as the Oscars in Los Angeles.
She is too humble to admit any of the above, which is why we found it necessary to share her credentials.
She loves vegan ice cream and trips to (anywhere).

Derrick not only brings vision and leadership ability, but also brings 10 years of both shooting and editing to the production team.

Behind every brand is a media specialist. Andre is our go-to guy when we want to know the difference between codecs, IOT best practices, print and design.
With a BA in Film Production and Graphic Design from The Art Institute, he brings a positive attitude, and can-do mentality to some of our biggest client requests.
Andre is a proud Guyanese American who can be caught on the dance floor at a soca fete or in the corner of a bachata club.
The verdict is still out on his dancing ability though.
Everything Andre does is 'Spot On'.
